Strange - I had 'american' for calendar-date-style (probably the default
value) but viewing the org agenda view did work properly even though I
entered bbdb anniversary dates in ISO format...

Whatever... this variable can have only 3 values: american, european,
iso. Neither of them is meant to represent Hebrew dates. I assume Hebrew
dates are dealt with in some other way....

I placed (bbdb-initialize 'anniv) into my .emacs but even after going to
Diary -> Show all (s) I don't see any bbdb entries showing up.

Thank you for digging into this issue!
